Sliders-the right way!

I never want to do burgers for a BBQ if I'm inviting friends over. There is a reason for this. I feel that hamburgers should always be done with the works. I want bacon, avocado, sauteed mushrooms, caramelized onions, cheese, etc. Not just lettuce, tomatoes and fact, I can do with those if I have the other things! And when I'm doing a BBQ, I want to make something super easy and quick that allows me to do as little work as possible!

This week I found a pack of 8 little tiny sliders at Trader Joe's, in the meat section. Last night we ate them. Soooo good! This is what we had with them:

Sadly, I couldn't find any ripe avocados, so I had to do without that. But what we did have was some delicious maple bacon. I also had some super tasty micro greens. I sauteed some white mushrooms in a bit of soy sauce, butter and olive oil. I then quickly marinated some red onion in red wine vinegar (I unfortunately didn't think to marinate them earlier) and then caramelized the onion. The meat I cooked on high with some yummy seasoning, after browning on the first side I flipped and topped with some extra sharp cheddar. I quickly browned the second side and then turned the heat off and covered (to melt the cheese).

They came out amazing. It was so quick and tasty, I think we are going to be doing these more often! I absolutely loved the micro greens, so pretty, tasty and healthy!

Unfortunately I only got a fairly poor picture of my last slider with my phone, but here it is!
